Prepare for impact
So brace yourself already, will you, and clear your evenings from this coming Monday on. JAW gets going on July 13 with the first Made in Oregon reading: Sue Mach’s new full-length, The Lost Boy.
Sue read scenes from this intriguing work in progress in the very first JAW Playwrights’ Slam back in 2005, and now you have the chance to hear the story in full. With real live actors and everything – Sue doesn’t have to play all the parts this time round.
By the way, Ms. Mach had a play in the very first JAW ever, way back in the 20th century. It’s lovely to see things come full circle, isn’t it?
I’m counting the hours till Monday, and contenting myself in the meantime to play this groovy teaser over and over again like a rat down the proverbially cheeseless tunnel. Only with the sound turned up really, really high.
